Apples

Apples are a good source of fiber, high in Vitamin C and potassium, low in sodium, and are almost fat-free. There is truth to the adage, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Apple picking is a great family friendly activity!

Mid August - Late October

Storing

Apples stay crisp and fresh for weeks if kept cold and moist. For best results, store them in a vegetable crisper or plastic bag in your refrigerator. Kept at room temperature, apples ripen 10 times faster than when kept in cold storage. Before storing, remove any apples that are bruised and use them immediately. Do not store apples near strong odors, as the odors may affect the taste of the apples. To avoid bruising, handle your apples very carefully...as if they were eggs!

Freezing

Core, peel and slice apples. Dip slices into lemon juice to prevent browning, and pack into freezer-proof containers. Applesauce also freezes well.
